The House of the Laughing Windows ★★★★

Giallos tend to naturally be bizarre, but this one is something special.  The film follows an art restorer who is hired to restore a mural in a church done by an artist that that recently went mad and died mysteriously.  The artist was affected by painting of Saint Sebastian and then went on and did a series of paintings about agony.  As the restorer discovers more and more about this artist it becomes apparent that someone else is there to stop him by any means necessary.  The tone of the film is really odd, at first it seems really slow, and not really engaging.  Then it turns quickly as the killer seems to be almost everyone in the area and the film becomes almost claustrophobic.  This one deserves some restoration itself with a BluRay release.
